The taste is very much fresh blueberries and wheat with light lemon zest. This is not the most complex beer like what I am used to from DuClaw. That said, it is exceptionally tasty. This is a beer that I could easily do a six of on a sunny afternoon.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy, golden/lemon-straw color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head quickly dissolved away into a very thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very wheaty and grassy up front, followed by lots of blueberry, lemon and lemon peel, honey and honey-suckle.

Taste: Very nice actually. Subtle notes of wheat, clover, grass, much less than I was expecting actually, followed by some hone-like sweetness and lots of blueberry and lemon zest. Quite nice flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and a little creamy, as there’s very little to no carbonation. With an ABV of 5.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Wow! A whit beer I like!! Nice flavors matched with a pleasant, creamy mouthfeel. Quite good!

12 oz.

Pours a clear golden with a white lacing for a head.

Smells of citrus and grassy malts with juicy and fresh berries throughout.

Tastes of grassy malts with lemon citrus and lemon grass flavorings and a slight banana. Slight berry tartness in the finish.

Medium body with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very nice light refreshing summery ale that quenches the thirst and goes down easy. The fruit flavoring is subtle as it should be.

Had to do this one since its summer time. Good beer to have outside on those hot days! Overall not too impressive but I did find things that I was impressed by. When poured it has a light amber color with a small fizzy head. Nothing too eye catching. However, the smell was absolutely great! It reminded me of a blueberry Poptart fresh out of the toaster! Bold sugary blueberry with a smooth citrus finish. The actual taste itself, has more of a sugary kick. I was hit by soft blueberry with a foamy citrus undertone. Its very sugary! So much so in fact, that by the time I was finishing the beer I had a hard time tasting all the flavors. Still nice though! but nothing outstanding. Just remember to pour it hard to get that head and enjoy that amazing smell!
